She was meant to undergo radiotherapy and return to Strictly, but has now revealed doctors dealt another blow when they discovered more tumours during an MRI, reports The Mirror.

She said: “For me my journey everything changed. I was originally going to have a lumpectomy, radiotherapy and hormone treatment. But then, after my MRI, they found another tumour so then it changed into a mastectomy and then, after my mastectomy, unfortunately, they found even more tumours.

“They found another type of cancer and then they told me I needed chemo – for me that was a massive blow. It wasn’t in the plan, originally – and I know the plan you can’t get fixated on.”

Amy says she will now need chemotherapy. She touched on the heart-breaking news in an Instagram post, revealing she would not be joining Strictly this year.

“Keep shining darling. You are stronger than you think. Even though you may doubt it, you will get through the hard stuff with grace, strength and courage,” it read, and she wrote: “Love this!” alongside it.
